In central european mythology, Undines are water spirits, elementals or water nymphs. In the world of Aria, the female gondoliers on Aqua are called undines.
It feels that making AMVs just gets harder and harder. I don't know if this is because my motivation is waning. I had long pauses during making of this AMV when I just didn't want to edit. Compared to some earlier works that I have edited during one weekend this took ages to complete. I don't know what would have happened to this project if there wouldn't have been an AMV contest deadline pressing me to finish at least something. To make things even more complicated RighStuff licenced the series when I was close to finishing it. I had to ponder whether to wait the DVDs or keep working with the average quality RAWs I have. Again the incoming deadline persuaded me to complete this one. If I'd have waited the DVDs the visual quality might have been much better.. but then again, I'd like to think the strength of this AMV lies somewhere else than visual finesse.
..and I have preordered the Aria DVDs.. how about you?
